obama. the relationship between the president's of the united states and the prime minister of israel, for example, our closest ally in the region, has suffered great strains. the president explicitly stated his goal was to put daylight between the united states and israel and he has succeeded. this is a dangerous situation that is set back the hope of peace in the middle east and emboldened our mutual adversaries especially iran. iran today has never been closer to a nuclear weapons capability. it has never posed a greater danger to our friends, our allies and us and never acted less detered by america as made clear last year when iranian agents plotted assassinate the saudi ambassador in our nation's capitol. yet when millions of iranians took to the streets in june 2009, when they demanded freedom from a cruel regime that threatens the world, when they cried out, are you with us or are you with them? the american president was silent. across the greater middle east, as the joy born from the downfall of dictators has given way to the painstaking work of building capable kurt forces
of the united states particularly in light of the fact there were two attacks on april and june. one was an ied that blew a hole in the wall. there was attempted assassination of the british ambassador in benghazi. the question is what did the president know, what did he know about it and what did he do about it? that is the what the president of the united states responsibility is. >> reporter: by the way in the a separate interview secretary clinton deflect ad question about her own aspirations for a presidential run in 2016. gin that. jenna: we'll talk more about this developing story in the next several hours. jails, thank you very much. >> reporter: thank you. jon: right now a major announcement about social security benefits. fed says millions will see increase in their monthly payments but it might not be the kind of number you expect. steve centanni following the story from washington. >> reporter: hi, jon. 56 americans receiving social security will see their checks go up but only 1.7% next year. this is tied to the rate of inflation just released this morning by the bureau of labor st
transport oil from canada to the united states? it sparked a whole lot of controversy including lawsuits from oil refineries, criticism from environmentalists. the president had to weigh in as well. whatever happened to it? where does it stand today? liz macdonald with the fox business network has a live update on that. liz? >> reporter: good to be with you, jenna. basically transcanada is still waiting for the state department to decide next year on whether or not it can build the keystone pipeline out of canada, through nebraska, all the way down into cushing and then into the gulf coast. it is building from cushing to the gulf coast right now. but because still crosses you know, an international border the state department has to weigh in and basically approve the permit before transcanada can move on the upper part of that keystone pipeline. jenna: a little bit of a wait and see right now. >> yeah, that's right. jenna: so much about jobs i understand. there is new information about what the oil industry and other industries related to energy really, how it impacts job growth here in
the next president of the united states! [cheers and applause] gregg: republicans didn't waste anytime trying to utilize the biden remark, did they? >> we'll be hearing a lot about that over the next couple weeks. and i can assure you the white house wishes they could reverse time and get biden to say something, anything different from that. but you know, for those us in the press that is the nice thing about joe biden. he is always sort of ad-libbing and giving us great things to write about. gregg: that updates the biden gaffe clock that the rnc always run on their website. paul ryan seems to have recalculated the infamous 47% remark that, hess running mate uttered. take a listen to this. >> today, 70% of americans get more benefits from the federal government in dollar value than they pay back in taxes. so you could argue we're already past that tippingpoint. the good news is, survey after survey, poll after poll, still shows that we are a center-right, 70-30 country. 70% of the americans want the american dream. they believe the in the american idea. only 30% want the welfare state
extradition. this is a matter of taking somebody who has been engaged in war against the united states and we want him. we want hill and want to take him to gitmo to interrogate him. jon: i'm reminded when a couple of the suspect iss in the attack on the uss cole were apprehended and given back to yemen to be held in custody there. they escaped. so here is this tunisia guy, wanted in connection with the attack on our consulate there. apparently we have video and facial recognition software that puts him in our compound the night of the attack and yet he has been released, picked up by the turks but released to tunisia custody? >> this whole thing is like a reversion to before the original 9/11 in 2001. the clinton administration, these terrorist attacks, the world trade center, the first world trade center bombing, the attack on the coal, the -- cole and attacks on our embassies in kenya an tanzania, khobar towers all treated as law enforcement matters. september 11th convinced us this is a war and should be treat as a war. when you try to deal with these attacks as if they're aggravated bank
, shutting down the border between the united states and canada? it's all "happening now." jon: and good morning to you on this wednesday after the presidential debate. it turned red hot as the candidates duke it out in a contentious town hall format. jenna: we're so glad you're with us everybody. i'm jenna lee. happening now the president looking to gain some lost ground in last night's fiery second debate. we'll see if he actually does that. both the president and governor romney, literally at times, jon, going toe-to-toe. jon: yeah. jenna: it got a little close there. jon: it sure did. jenna: kind of in that spoken, right? -- zone, personal zone. interruptionses filled the debate. there were so many challenges on so many different topics from the economy to taxes to the terror attack in libya energy. specifically on energy there was quite an exchange when it came to federal drilling permits. take a look at this. >> that's the problem. in the last four years you cut permits and licenses on federal land in federal waters in half. >> not true, governor romney. >> how much did you cut the
and applause] it's also good to know that we've got the former governor and next united states senator from the commonwealth of virginia, tim kaine. [applause] and your congressman, jerry connolly. it is good to see all of you. [cheers] so, one month. just one month from tomorrow, virginia, you're going to step into a voting booth, and you are going to have a very big choice to make. i know folks in this crowd may have already made some decisions but -- [cheers and applause] but, for the undecideds that are here, as well as those who are watching today, i said this before. this is a choice, not just between two candidates or two parties but a choice between two fundamentally different visions for america and today i believe that as a nation we are moving forward again. we're moving forward. [applause] after losing about 800,000 jobs a month when i took office our businesses have now added 5.2 million new jobs over the past 2 1/2 years. [cheers and applause] this morning we found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. [cheers and applause] more ame
to the radical islam in the middle east. they're trying to remove the united states from the region. it appears our policy is compliant with that. we're disengaging from the region geopolitically, and materially. troops out of iraq. end date for afghanistan as well. our rather feckless policy dealing with iran. strategically we do have issue. jenna: you think both parties, general, when you say we, everyone in washington is basically not doing the job when it comes to knowing the policy or the right policy moving forward? >> well i think it's on the table now. it is constructed to see that, that the current policy, unstated of disengagement from the middle east and pivoting to the east or the asian-pacific area is now on under question and needs to be discussed and needs to be debated. i think clearly it is headed in the wrong direction. that is why you see al qaeda filling in the vacuum. jenna: talk a little bit about iran. that was a big topic last night. certainly a big topic in the news over the last, well, couple of years in fact. here is just a quick sound bite, if you will from the debat
about the video and saying that we in the united states do not denigrate any religion. he goes for eight paragraphs. starts talking about 9/11. the fact this was the anniversary of 9/11 and morning went on. it is eight paragraphs later when he talks about no acts of terror. i don't think anybody reading or listening to what he said that day on september 12th thought he was specifically calling the attack in benghazi a terrorist attack. i must say, nobody in the reporting of it that day said that he had said that. so i do think he misstated what he in fact said, on september 12th and i suspect that is going to be a big subject for the next few days as we pour over that. obviously it will be a subject that will be gone over i think in great detail. i would hope so, in the final foreign policy debate next monday. jenna: something we'll be talking about a lot today. interesting to see the moderator weigh in on the topic as well last night, chris. a lot to get to. appreciate you joining us. see you on sunday as always. >> you bet. jenna: chris will anchor "fox news sunday". check your local l
, and i felt badly, it is clear he is not ready to be the commander-in-chief of the united states military. he demonstrated the lack of sophistication about what is going on in the world. his rapid change in his positions. look, being president requires a clear vision and a steady hand that is exactly what president obama demonstrated tonight and it is exactly what governor romney demonstrated was lacking. jon: so who won? joining us now for a fair and balanced debate, simon rosenberg and founder of mdn and former clinton campaign advisor. ron bonjean with us as well on the right of your screen. former communications director for former house speaker dennis hastert. simon, to you first, it is a who won question but also a question about who advanced their campaign priorities the most. give us your take. >> sure. i mean every poll and every focus group done last night had barack obama winning the debate and i think, you know, the democrats feel very good today. we have won three out of the last 4-d bates. we feel like we have momentum going the final two weeks. it is very hard to hearing ar

in the united states. >> reporter: what we saw after the president framed that way, though, framed it that way is that mitt romney punched back and said, wait a second you've been president for four years, why haven't you done some of that. it didn't appear that the president had been challenged in that kind of a direct way in a longtime and didn't really counter punch on those points. he's going to have to recover quickly now not just because we have two more presidential debates and a vice presidental one coming next week, but tomorrow there is a jobs report for the month of september. that is something the obama camp will have to be ready for as well. jon: some are saying is part of the reason romney scored is because he was more personal, had a more personal approach. do you think that is the case in. >> there were some elements of that. we've heard so much out off the campaign trail about how the president was going to be hitting mitt romney over bain capital, over the 47% video, he didn't really bring that up, didn't bring up the tax returns, all kinds of things that have been fodder for
. >>> and our fox news voter fraud unit digs up a doozy. democratic officials in one state in big trouble for, get this, vodka for votes. you can't make this stuff up. it's all "happening now." ♪ jon: we are just hours away now from the third and final presidential debate of this campaign season. the race for the white house could not be any closer. will tonight change anything? we'll see. good morning, i'm jon scott. jenna: hi, everybody, i'm jenna lee. there's a live look at the debate stage at lynn university in boca raton, florida. tonight's focus, foreign policy. and while jobs and the economy remain the number one issues among voters, america's role in the world taking center stage in tonight's 90-minute head to head. president obama and governor romney will face off on a number of politically-charged issues including the war in afghanistan, the nuclear standoff with iran, trade with china and the president's handling of the september 11th terror attack on our consulate in libya. that attack, of course, four americans murdered there. senior national correspondent be john roberts live
about the following things: his vision for the or united states on the world stage, american exceptionalism and by bringing it back to his strongest suit which is the economy, arguing that you can't have a strong foreign policy, you can't have a strong military without having a strong economy. and the campaign trail yesterday in colorado springs, his running mate, paul ryan, suggested that president obama is projecting weakness. >> our adversaries when they see us projecting weakness, when they see us hollowing out our military, when they see us equivocating when it comes time to stand up for our beliefs and our values overseas, they think that we are a superpower in decline. they think that we are weakening. and we are weakening ourselves, we are less safe. >> reporter: now, romney will also make the argument that a strong economy engenders respect around the world, and a strong military means rather than going to fight a war, you may avoid a war because no one wants to take you on. jenna: all right, so that's romney's strategy. what about the president's? >> reporter: well,
the inside. the united states has limited influence in this situation. it is going to have to react, try to plan as best as it can but we have to be prepared for a lot of surprises and a lot of problems. jenna: why do you say that we have to be prepared to react rather than potentially having a more proactive approach to the changes that are happening in the region? >> well, we will have proactive approaches but there will be a lot of surprises. there are a lot of unknowns and there could be violence but this is a basically still, we hope, a democratic movement and the people of the region will determine what happens. and the level of prediction is going to be pretty low. jenna: so you're still hopeful that there is a democratic undercurrent to some of the changes that we're seeing in the middle east. others of course are doubtful of that. and one of the things that senator graham brought up is his comparison to the bush administration for the very reason that he feels that there's a difference in the narrative that we're hearing from the obama administration and the reality that is actu
. they want to know what happened and why they didn't stop these guns from leaving the united states and ending up in this, in these crimes. >> reporter: spanish language network univision and fox news obtained a list of 100,000 weapons recovered in mexico and compared of the serial numbers with the 2,000 guns sold in "fast and furious." nearly two dozen matched, connectings untold number of injuries and fatalities to the u.s. program. this woman lost two sons to "fast and furious" guns. >> they feel helpless. they don't know what to do. we interview one of them and they say, who is going to pay for this? >> reporter: it could be the u.s. government, should the family of border agent brian terry prevail in their wrongful death claim. >> the people can go and sue in the united states with american lawyers that would be a very interesting development certainly. >> reporter: for its part the mexican government has remained largely silent, unwilling to criticize its northern neighbor. >> our political elites only worried about obtaining the next position and they and benefits they obtain

. >> they are complaining about the united states increasing the range of south korea missiles. the north korea's are no more than bluster. they'll probably be able to perfect and deploy a missile that will hit the united states within three or four years. a big military parade in china, the chinese sold them missile launchers. and may have sold them the missiles on top of them. we don't really have a north korea problem, we have a china problem. jenna: so much of the news is around the middle east. we've heard from mitt romney with his foreign policy speech yesterday very much focused on the middle east. you say as americans we have to pay attention to two, big main actors in the world today, and that is china and russia, why? >> because, yes, syria, iran, north korea, they do threaten us, what makes them inch seeding lee dangerous is they have the backing of both moscow and beijing. without the backing they won't be able to do very much. also terrorists would be much easier to deal with if they didn't have state sponsors of terrorism. many of those state sponsors are in turn sponsored by beij
's for sure. that's why we have to crackdown on the centers. 7500 of these are in the united states. not all of these are taking this kind of leeway. right now they are looking into it from a criminal point of view to see what was done. jon, these products have to be tere hraoeuzed before they go into the human body. if you're going to have a shot you better be sure that what you're getting is steroids. jon: unbelievable that medicine is making people sick and even killing them. >> it can be treated if caught early. we have medicine, antifungal agents. jon: thank you. >> good to see you. jenna: a woman claims she didn't get a job because of her conservative political beliefs. she is suing and the case is getting nation-wide attention. we'll tell you about that coming up. new poll numbers on the crucial voting block in the presidential race, women as both candidates push hard to get their votes. a fair & balanced debate on women issues, next. americans are always ready to work hard for a better future. since ameriprise financial was founded back in 1894, they've been committed to putting clie
if this is the new normal they reject that. they know the united states and this tremendous engine of economic growth should be doing a lot better than a paltry 2% and 14% total unemployment. so, women are rejecting this but here's the bottom line. the fact that team obama is still putting out ads like this targeting women that julia is talking about, they are still incredibly worried about their base. they're worried about these women. they're worried about minorities. they're worried about colleges kids. that is why you're seeing these kind of targeted ads. if they're that worried this late in the race they're in trouble. >> is purely turnout election. what they're trying to do with that ad as you know from come pains trying to turn out their base. the base is young democratic women. they make sure the people get to the polls. that ad is not designed to appeal people monica and my ages. not father of college women but college women themselves. jon: julie roginsky, monica crowley, 11 days to go. fascinating to see what happens on november 6th. jenna. jenna: we're getting breaking news on the deadly
be willing to see a few more arms to go to syria. even he is not proposing the united states provide them to the insurgents. i don't know if that is because he is concerned about russia getting angry or there is some other reason. but you're not seeing a huge difference of opinion on actual policies. obama says he wants a four-stage missile defense system in europe to defend against iranian missiles. but that fourth stage in particular, there is a chance that president obama might rethink, based on his comment in korea. whereas romney seems to be very firmly committed to all four stages. but that's a pretty modest disagreement since they're both going to deploy the first three stages of this system. so, you know, it's a little bit tough to actually translate their apparent big rhetorical disagreement into actual policy differences. >> it will be interesting to hear if it is mentioned tonight and see if there are some nuances that really speak to differences in either campaign or whether or not as you mentioned, maybe it is just rhetoric as could be, definitely, in campaign season. michael
